2012 Annual Golf Tournament (May)

Hello Troop Families,

It’s that time of year again!

Our annual fundraiser golf tournament is scheduled for Monday, May 7th!  Attached is a registration form and a sponsor information flyer.  We are working on updating a brochure for players which was designed by Eagle Scout Ben Weiner.  It is designed as a tri-fold brochure, which makes it easy for mailing.  When properly folded, the center panel has pictures of some scouts and the Troop 2860 motto.  This brochure can also be used to sign up sponsors.  We will email that to the troop and print copies when it becomes available.

A big challenge for charity golf tournaments is finding golfers.  We have a 'core' group in our tournament, but to keep the tournament vibrant we need to find new golfers every year.  This is where all of you can help.  If you play golf, please plan on joining us with some friends on May 7th.  If not, talk up the tournament to friends, neighbors, and colleagues you know who play golf.  Put the flyers up at work or at your place of worship.  Distribute the flyers in your neighborhood.  In past years,  business groups have used our tournament for a team building exercise, and they had a great time!!!  Do whatever you can do to get the word out. 

We are also needing help in the following areas to help ensure a successful tournament.  In the past much of this was done by one or two people.  This year, however, business travel and family concerns require that we use more of a group approach:
·        Sponsorship Coordinator
·        Publicity/Signage/Programs
·        Prize and Trophy Coordinator(s)
·        Audiovisual Coordinator
·        Food and Beverage liaison (easy)

None of these functions will demand a lot of time, but all are necessary. 

If you can help in any of these areas, or only think you can, please contact me as soon as possible.  The boys deserve it.

Feel free to print/copy and use the attached brochure and registration form.  In addition, we will be distributing several high-quality copies of the sponsor flyer to each Scout soon.  Our golf tournament will only be successful if we get contributions from everyone.  Let's all work together to make this a lasting legacy for our Troop!
